  • Sheriff’s Corner: Spay or neutering your pets

    We have been fortunate this week to have the N.C. State College of Veterinary Medicine at our Animal Protective Services facility in Supply, along with its spay/neuter van.

    This free “Spay a Stray” clinic was sponsored by Petsense and managed by our friends at Paws-Ability. This was a great reminder of how important it is to have our pets spayed or neutered. Spay or neutering animals not only increases the longevity of their life and helps them live a healthier life, it also decreases the intake of unwanted pets into our shelter.
